Systematic Theology: The Doctrine of God
One of the main tasks of systematic theology is to reflect on what the
Christian tradition means when it speaks of God. Every other theological
topic is related to this. This course investigates this key question,
both in its own right, in relation one or several of the traditional
loci of systematic theology, and in relation to the overarching
architectonics of the subject.
Things that may be explored are, for
instance, questions of the divine nature and attributes, trinity,
Christology, and pneumatology. Course work is focused around the reading
of primary texts, as well as on understanding these in relation to
overarching theoretical themes in academic theology.
